My strings and leftover strips are out of control and just before my Go Cutter arrived, I started to contemplate a series of Log Cabin quilts to tame the string bins. It would be so easy for me to just play with the new Cutter and my fabric stash but I like to set goals and stick to them – gives me a feeling of accomplishment.
So I’ve decided I’ll do a series of Log Cabin quilts this year and see if I can make a dent in the strings. I’m going to work with different layouts, color options, and some variations (i.e. Courthouse Steps, Half Log Cabin) . For all of the quilts, I’ll use leftovers of various widths so there will be no cutting involved and I’ll alternate making these blocks and tops with ones I’ll make out using the new cutter.
I’ve been puttering around the last couple days getting caught up and have managed to make 30 of the 48 blocks I need for the 2nd quilt in my series. I also need to finish those last Kaleidoscope blocks this week.
So do you get bored easily and have to try lots of different patterns or do you enjoy making the same pattern in different variations? I figure if artists and art quilters can work in series; so can I.
